DUNWOODY -- State Farm Insurance Company is expanding its operations in Metro Atlanta with a national operations center in Dunwoody that will join two other hubs in Dallas and Phoenix.
The new facility will be built on a nearly four-acre site at Hammond Drive and Perimeter Center Parkway, across from the Dunwoody MARTA station.
State Farm is not saying much publicly about a major expansion, but it's putting Dunwoody on its national map with a major customer service and claims center.
Along with the expansion will be a substantial number of new jobs.
The Insurance Carrier already has more than 3,500 employees in the Metro.
The expansion is coming as a boon to Dunwoody business development.
The City's Economic Director calls the State Farm plan a core for development of a corporate campus along the Perimeter, providing quick access to the Dunwoody MARTA station and major Interstates.
